Participant MCreator x CurseForge ModJam 2024


This apology post is regarding the disqualification of my Quackening mod from the MCreator Modjam because it was considered developed before the Modjam.
In late April, I experimented with different random ideas and features, including one with a duck beforehand. When the Modjam was announced, I decided to participate and develop the rough duck idea into an actual proper mod, which will become the Quackening.
I should have restarted properly from a new MCreator project to ensure it does not contain any elements created before 27th April, instead of just building on an existing project file. I believed this had violated the first rule of the Mod Jam.
I am very sorry for such a mistake, and I would like to apologize to the organizers, fellow contestants and the community. I will continue to support this awesome mod jam as an observer.  
This apology will also remain on The Quackening mod page as a constant reminder.





The quackening has begun!

Ducks will invade your world and raid you. Find and take down the bases they create, and arm yourself against the ducks. 


Below are simple infographics on the contents of the mod. Further explanation and trivia will be provided at the bottom of the page. 




Explanations and trivia

Raid functionality 

Duck raids come in many tiers, from 1 to 8, 1 being the easiest to beat. 


In order to spawn a raid,  multiple conditions need to be met. 

Raid points - points gained by gaining xp from killing mobs. Higher-tier raids require more points to spawn.

If I have 20 advancements, tier 2 raids can spawn. if I have 60 advancements, tier 6 raids can spawn. 


Raid timing - There should be a gap in timing between when a first raid spawns and a second one spawns. 

When a raid spawns and is defeated, the raid timer goes up. To lower the timer, players need to gain one advancement.  


Raid check - A world can only have one raid active at a time. 


In order to complete a raid, all ducks part of the raid must be slain. The health bar of the raid drops per duck slain. Once a raid is completed, it spawns a boss duck where the player is standing.


Raids can only spawn in a 100 by 100 area fo the player so they are easier to find.

Duck bases and camps

Ducks can build camps, which look like villages. 



1: The design of the Quackenator was partially based of FNAF??? don't ask me on this one

2. The Duck Army is a powerful variant of the duck raids. Upon defeating it, the Quackenator will spawn.

3. The stone variant of the duck camp can generate very buggily. (idk mcreator)

4. The plasma blade can sometimes strike lightning when a mob is hit.

5. The Quackenator's voiceline was done by one of my friends. The line is also based on Minos Prime's intro speech.

6. These beautiful graphics here are done by Sandara. Thanks a lot!

  • balancing changes

Raid points are no longer increased by gaining advancements, but through xp instead.

Duck Raids will now only spawn in a smaller area around the player, so they are easier to find.

Duck Raids create a large particle over where they have spawned so it is easier to find.

Archer duck movement speed has been nerfed.

Advancement tree for killing bosses has been added.

fixed bug where quckenator did not drop any items

They should chase the player with the phrase "what's your jacket filled with"

The Most Original idea I have even seen, Very interesting invasion mod idea.
